CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Indians have traded first baseman Jake Bauers to the Seattle Mariners for a player to be named or cash. Bauers was named Cleveland’s starting first baseman despite being outplayed by Bobby Bradley in training camp because he was out of minor league options. Bauers batted just .190 with six RBIs in 43 games before the Indians designated him for assignment last weekend and recalled Bradley, who has four hits in first 10 at-bats. Bauers is in Seattle's starting lineup for Thursday’s game in Detroit. He’ll be back in Cleveland on Friday when Seattle opens a three-game series.
